Discusses some basic facts about the service sector and service trade; a new approach to identifying tradable services; characteristics of workers in tradable service industries; comparative advantage—lessons from manufacturing; comparative advantage—prospects for the service sector; impediments to trade in services; the labor-market impact of increased service trade; and trade services across U.S. regions—opportunities and vulnerabilities.
